Cooking with Styles: Coq Au Vin

Coq au vin is a French dish of chicken braised with wine, lardons, mushrooms, and optionally garlic. Check out Shawn Styles' recipe

I came across coq au vin on my first trip to France, in a small village on the Rhone River, while making our way south to go surfing in Hossegor. After that it seemed like every village, we went to had its own variation.

  • 8 boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 pieces of bacon, sliced
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
